A journal of my sewing and knitting adventures in which I try to make something a "little different" by using unusual patterns and materials.
I have challenged myself to finish 31 knitted and/or crocheted wearable items by May 2014 and sew outfits to wear with them.

31 Outfits Challenge--#8,#9,#10
I had a great time at the Crochet Convention and saw many great crochet designs. My favorite class was on "Combining knitting and Crochet" which I plan to do more on. In the above picture I knitted the back of this sweater with a linen/silk combo yarn. After finding the Missoni-like fabric to make the underneathe tee I decided to change to crochet on the front and mimic the tee design:
Here are two more summer outfits that I recently finished up:
Crocheted top from cotton yarn, ITY knit tee fabric from FabricMart, linen pants fabric from stash.
Top crocheted with silk yarn, cotton/rayon tee underneath in basic pattern, linen pants fabric from JoAnne's.
This completes my summer projects-- in my next entry I will be starting on fall outfits.
